About Mardi Gras Masks

Mardi Gras is the celebration of excess; a time to eat richer, fattier foods before the fasting season of Lent. It is also a time for Mardi Gras masks. They are beautiful and elegant in design, and some cover just your eyes while others cover half of your face. Although many Mardi Gras masks are cheaply made and intended for just one night, there are some which are crafted from Venetian metal. The Venetian metal ones are high-quality masks that you can preserve for several years, and they are decorated with feathers, rhinestones, and other gems. Another tradition is the Mardi Gras jester mask. Jester masks cover the upper half of the face, but they also include an attached head piece that resembles a jester's hat. Perhaps you are a fan of Mardi Gras, but not a fan of covering your face. Not to worry, you can always collect Mardi Gras wall masks which are figurines you can hang on your wall or store on a shelf. Whichever type of Mardi Gras mask you choose, you can find a vast inventory on eBay.
